subtle, it becomes more real than

reality..."

Based in the fine county 

of Norfolk, we deliver a broad range of visual commissions framed around a simple ethos; the delicate, working of premium imagery, through a progressive influence of luminance and hue. Essential to the DNA of a photograph, is EMR. (Light). It can be sensitively tuned from ambient space, and in keeping with how captivating images should appear, invasive flash use is hushed away wherever possible. Abrasive glare is the foe, we endeavour to dance around it. A quote from Teal Scott; "To make the darkness conscious is to turn the shadow into light...”

Honestly and objectively priced, a vast array of options are 

afforded to our end-products. Whether ultra-minimalist or 

exquisitely housed USB Drives, simple Photo Books or sumptuous hand bound Albums of the finest materials, each and every shot is presented in sublime colour and definition. Our pristine monochromes are no less defined. Aside from emergencies, client specifics are usually arranged well in advance of shooting. From a firm belief in the company's mindset and a pinch of fortuitous intent, it's encouraging not being compelled to dull our 

ideology with acquisitive sales practices and artificially veiled promotion. As humble supporters of Friends of the Earth, we're working to create a more streamlined, 

eco-conscious footprint within the environment; a greatly 

reduced paper trail, through objectives including brochure-free operations, was a viable start. Moving ahead, if it isn't 

essential, we don't want it. (Hey, we love a funky business 

card though, so our little rectangles of joy are produced from recycled prints and, 'ahem', brochures.) 

imagikaimage employs advanced dynamic optics and hardware from industry leaders Canon, Leica, and Hasselblad. Additionally, precise, non-destructive techniques in the

repair and polish of vintage/degraded images are 

meticulously undertaken. The freshly healed may wear an

optional logo of honour. Nice! 

Virtues aside, in every minute today, a gazillion images are captured, cropped and clarified in a whirlpool of ever smarter mobile devices. So many pictures, instantly

produced, primped and posted to the ether by legions of eager snappers. That's just grand. Photography is a life enhancing 

diversion. With this in mind, quantity over calculative quality, 

is a respectable trade-off. The more shiny happy photos,

the brighter and less monotone, life will appear. 

A brief observation on something not quite so grand; 

an appraisal of scores of self-appointed 'Professionals' within today's landscape; 'The Click & Wing It Club'.

They remain largely indifferent to the key skills necessary for excellence in this field; advanced precisional know-how, and an exceptional affinity in what the eye perceives. The latter, is not an easy trait to acquire. All too often, we hear of clients waiting months on end for a lukewarm quantity of blah, blah, blah☹︎ 

You see, what ultimately figures in the Chameleon 

Art of Photography, is talent.

And blah, blah, blah... isn't good enough.  

At imagikaimage, capturing peerless moments on an Ocular

Light Processing Image Machine, is to step knowingly 

Through The Looking Glass, and onwards...
